The San Antonio Business Journal covered our partnership with Zachry in a recent article:
Local nonprofit The Children’s Bereavement Center of South Texas recently inked a partnership agreement with Zachry Corp. to provide its employees with bereavement counseling services as part of the company’s employee assistance program (or EAP).
Terms of the nonprofit’s contract with Zachry, a locally based construction and materials company, were not disclosed.
EAPs are employee benefit programs offered by employers that are intended to help employees deal with personal problems that might impact their health and work performance. They generally take the form of assessment, short-term counseling and referral services for employees and their family members.
The partnership is an important step in the nonprofit’s evolution, officials with the organization say. It’s the first time the center has contracted directly with a company as an EAP provider, and the relationship is part of a broader plan to extend services to more local companies, providing the nonprofit with a new revenue stream.
